HIGHLIGHTS

  • 22:41 (IST)

    GAME OVER! Root finishes it in style, with two boundaries. Great innings by him. Remains unbeaten on 133. His ankle might worry the English team, but a great performance by them.

England showed how strong a one-day unit they have become, and why they are the top contenders for the Champions Trophy
